I'd go for the 57's. They're the nicest pickups Gibson makes IMO.


I like the Burstbuckers more, but for half the price I got a set of Highorders wound for me instead, that are amazing.

you are going to have to find some way of regaining those trebles if you want them.


Can't. You can lower the EQ on the other bands to compensate.

I settled on a .018uF cap after trying .047 (commonly associated with h/buckers along with .033uF)


Er, 0.022µF are common for Gibson dual HB guitars. .047µF is more commonly used with single coil pickups, which are brighter; those caps would probably be way too dark for most HBs. Tastes differ though, I've read of someone using a .1µF cap with the bridge pickup of his LP because it was too bright for him otherwise. Maybe he's a dog?

Pot value also matters - 250kΩ is typical for single coils, 333kΩ or 500kΩ for HBs. Lower value pots will cause a less bright sound compared to higher value ones, all else being equal.

In one LP I have .022µF for the neck and .015µF for the bridge. The other has a pair of .022µF caps.

Classic '57s would be a better bet.

Here are the SD ones you might want to consider:
Vintage style humbuckers.
